Found the tracks on the melting snow edge of a field in the morning. A couple of hours later the snow was all gone. The running and skipping with frequent stops as described on p. 71 of Mark Elbroch's book 'Bird Tracks & Sign' was clearly evident.

Description

A small group of about 6 deer were scared by a woman walking her dog. I happened to be walking towards them from the opposite direction. One of the deer splintered off from the main group. I measured one of the bounds to be 16.5 foot in length (see photos 1 and 2) in deep snow! After a few minutes she (he?) came around me to re-join the other deer (see the 3rd photo).

Found these tracks in the soft silt around the edge of a stream in a thicket. Can someone explain to me how to tell these tracks apart from a chipmunk (apart from the size difference)?
